FA Charges Man City Over Improper Conduct In Tottenham Game

FA Charges Man City Over Improper Conduct In Tottenham Game

Manchester City have been charged by the Football Association with failing to control their players in Sunday’s 3-3 Premier League draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

Players surrounded referee Simon Hooper when he awarded a free-kick to City late in stoppage time after it looked like Jack Grealish was through on goal.

Hooper initially indicated City had the advantage and waved play on, but halted the match once the pass was played.

City have until Thursday, 7 December to respond to the charge.

According to the BBC, an FA statement said the Treble winners “failed to ensure their players do not behave in a way which is improper.”
Erling Haaland was one of several City players to remonstrate with the official.

The Norwegian star continued his protests after the game by reposting a clip of the incident on X, formerly Twitter, with the comment “Wtf”, which is offensive slang.

However, the FA will not be handing out any further charges relating to the fixture, so Haaland is not facing an individual punishment.

It is the third Premier League game in succession that City have drawn, having also been held by Liverpool and Chelsea.

They sit third in the Premier League with a three-point gap to leaders Arsenal.
